As of September 2020, New Farm Montessori is operating under the restrictions set forth by the Oregon Department of Education Early Learning Division as Emergency Child Care (ECC). As such we have reduced group sizes and have implemented stringent practices regarding sanitation and health policies. Our school families and staff are committed to doing all we can to prevent the spread of Covid-19 while providing a safe and peaceful social environment for our neighborhood children.
Morning Montessori: Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. ($750 per month)*
Morning Montessori, plus lunch : Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. ($950 per month)*
Extended Day Montessori: Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. ($1200 per month)*
*Monthly tuition includes healthy snacks, lunch, materials and supplies.
Our school year runs September through the end of June. Most children join the children’s house between ages 2.5-3 years, though there is flexibility based on the developmental readiness of each child. The Montessori primary program is a three year program, which includes the kindergarten year; children benefit the most from participating for the full three years.
Our morning and afternoon work cycles are loosely structured to provide maximum flexibility, freedom and choice, allowing us to meet each child’s needs and interests. Throughout the day children participate in individualized lessons in practical life activities, sensorial materials, language, math, science, geography and cultural studies. We also enjoy group games, stories, music, dancing, yoga, gardening, walks in the neighborhood and (when it is safe again to do so) outings to our local parks.
